Dollar reaches a nexus as death cross points trend downward for foreseeable future

Back in March, the dollar was the most wanted currency in light of the Greek crisis, and ongoing currency wars raging between dozens of countries.  In fact, the U.S. reserve currency was perceived as such a safe haven that it sat at over 100 on the index, with nations moving large amounts of their currencies into the dollar to hedge themselves from local and geo-political turmoil. But as the U.S. markets pe ...

Besides banning cash, banking cartel begins to drop hints of ending capitalism entirely

In capitalism, one of the most important fundamentals is that of price discovery being a natural occurrence determined between supply and demand among producers and consumers.  But for centuries this natural facet of free markets has been stymied due to political agendas, and corporate manipulation. And with the advent of central banks, who have used their power over money supplies and interest rates to ske ...

Group of 30 global central banks admit QE failed and did nothing for economies

It must be finally getting crunch time for the primary central banks around the world because on Oct. 10, the G30 group of global money printers admitted in a detailed report that the tens of trillions of dollars, euros, yen, and other currencies they have infused into the system has done absolutely nothing for local economies, and instead has accomplished what alternative economists stated would happen fro ...

Federal Reserve remains only institution not seeing the coming financial crisis

This morning on CNBC (aka... CNBS), the central bank lackey Steve Liesman spoke with the NY Fed President Bill Dudley on rate outlooks for the remainder of the year.  And contrary to the fact that the FOMC choose not to raise rates in September, Dudley used the term 'very good economy' at least five times in less than five minutes during his interview, showing how out of touch the Fed really is when it come ...

U.S. trade deficit validates the Fed can’t and won’t raise rates

Has anyone noticed that only Wall Street talking heads and those trying to sucker you into the stock market are still using the world recovery after the Fed chose not to raise rates in September?  That is because an economy that has been artificially driven by tens of trillions of dollars in printed money since 2008 has never built a true foundation for recovery out of the Great Recession seven years later. ...

Increase in bank ATM fees is just another way to wean Americans off cash

Despite the fact that since 2008, where banks have had almost unlimited access to 'free money' through the Federal Reserve's discount window, their balance sheets have been short liquid capital since most of this borrowing has been used to build a network of paper assets and derivatives.  And because of policies that now see very little cash being kept on hand in local bank branches to support customer need ...

It appears that the Fed is now done propping up markets as S&P 500 hits its Death Cross

It has been 10 days since the now famous Federal Reserve interest rate announcement, with the markets having reacted as if Janet Yellen had not said a word.  For in the past when the Fed spoke of raising interest rates, a decision to keep them near zero had always resulted in a new sweep of buying that brought the markets to new all-time highs.  But after equities reached their apex in back mid-May, more th ...

Okun’s Razor: How can the Fed ever raise rates with real unemployment over 12%

There is one sure thing about central banks and government agencies... neither one will ever do the right thing.  And when the propaganda we have been getting for more than a decade from both the Fed and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) suddenly was shattered 10 days ago when Janet Yellen chose not to raise interest rates, the reality of believing in false models and manipulated data revealed itself lik ...

Retail sales in U.S. fall back to recession levels

The U.S. is no longer a manufacturing economy, and is instead a consumer based one where over 70% of the annual GDP is tied to consumer and government spending.  So when this single component drops by even a small amount quarter to quarter or year to year, it creates a huge impact on the overall growth for America. Which is why new data from Johnson-Redbook shows that consumer spending growth has fallen to ...

Stock market and corporate earnings might have been final straw for Fed’s rate decision

Since the Fed made its shocking no-call last week on its decision whether to raise interest rates, analysts have been not only questioning the true state of the economy, but also have been insinuating that the central bank's credibility may be completely shot.  But as we look at new data coming out on corporate earnings, especially those on the S&P 500, their declines year over year (yoy) coupled with g ...

One day after the Fed caters to markets, census bureau validates recovery was for the rich

The Federal Reserve has never had a mandate to either listen to, or enact, polices predicated towards the equity markets in the United States or abroad.  But since the middle of the Greenspan era, and the rise of investment banks controlling major portions of the stock markets through high frequency trading, the implementations of the Greenspan Put, the Bernanke Put, and after yesterday, the Yellen Put, hav ...

Fed leaves interest rates the same signalling economy is not in a good state

Fed Day has finally arrived, and just as many here in the alternative media believed, the central bank did nothing.  However, even more than simply keeping interest rates at zero for the foreseeable future, comments by Fed Chairman Janet Yellen signaled that not only is the economy not in as good a state as they have been parroting for the past year, but global downturns have even brought up the conversatio ...
